Shipping Profiles Feedback & Bugs

The new Shipping Profiles feature announced at Unite 2019 will be a game changer for a lot of merchants using Shopify.  After testing out some of the functionality, I've noticed a few things that the Shopify dev team may already be aware of, but I thought I would pass them along just in case.

Shipping Profiles Product Picker Filtering

Adding the ability to filter products in the product picker when adding products to the shipping profile will allow merchants to quickly add all products of a certain type or products that belong to a certain vendor.

Bugs

 

Shipping Profile Products

After saving a shipping profile and returning to the Shipping page, the profile displays the count for the number of products that belong to that profile.

However, when you edit the shipping profile, the profile settings page shows no products.

Hi @Joel-Reeds ,

Thanks a lot for your feedback and interest.

 

This has been fixed already but not in the `developer preview` that was shipped for Unite.

For unite we where really focused on the API so that partner could give us feedback before the 2019-07 release.
The UI was in alpha as we experiment with the API first approach.

Thanks a lot for you passion and interest for everything shipping as well as for the great conversation at Unite.

Hi,

I am using the new shipping profiles. I have set up the profiles, and most are working perfectly however there are about 8 products that I cannot save to the correct profile no matter how many times I try- it is like they are stuck in the general shipping profile and no matter how many times I have added this group of products to my new shipping profile they are still showing up under general. 

 

When I browse all of my products in the new profile via the new "add products to shipping profile" it shows that these products are not in the new profile, but when I search for the product directly in the add product to profile section it shows that the product is in the new profile ( and not in the general profile which it also is) Thanks

Talking with Shopify's shipping team, Shipping Profiles is currently being rolled out in stages.  This means that not all shops currently work with Shipping Profiles, but it will be available to everyone very soon!

Absolutely agree!  If I recall correctly the aim is for 100% rollout in the very near future.

Why don't shipping profiles work like Collections, where I can set up Conditions to add products automatically?

Alternatively, why isn't there a dropdown on product pages to set the Shipping Profile there, so that when I duplicate it, I don't have to also go into the Shipping Profile to add the new product?

 

I like the concept of multiple shipping profiles, but the implementation is clunky.
